Introducing Winston Surfshirt, the Sydney-based band quickly winning over fans and industry alike with their unique blend of soul and hip-hop – the auditory equivalent of A Tribe Called Quest splitting spliffs with your parent’s favourite band.
Having developed a cult following with their smooth style and raucous live shows, the band originally emerged as the solo project of singer/rapper/producer Winston Surfshirt, before gradually adopting other local artists and producers to form what is now a musical collective.
With a lauded and unique versatility in their sound, Winston Surfshirt’s past performances range from sold out headline shows to festival appearances, underground warehouse gigs and block parties.
After bubbling away on the scene over the past few years, Winston Surfshirt gradually evolved into their current six-piece lineup. Thereafter, 2016 saw Winston earn nods from triple j and Majestic Casual for his buttery-smooth solo vocal feature on Polographia’s hit track, ‘Sly’.
Leading 2017 the band offered their single ’Be About You’ which is their most cultivated effort yet, and supported Aussie legends Midnight Oil at their first comeback tour. The 5-piece will go on national tour this June ending with a spot on the Splendour On The Grass bill.
